Couch 2 5K 2 5Miles: Week 22
Well, this week was a ROUGH week!! I was told I would be better by Monday after surgery Friday and that I could resume my exercise routine. However, Monday night I was sick several times and didn't realize that I had ripped my incision open. =/ I found this out on Thursday when I went in for a check up! My doctor assessed the situation and said it had already started to heal and that he would have to reopen it in order to fix it or I could leave it as is and just have a bigger scar. Since my stomach already looks deformed from the '06 surgery fiasco I just said to leave it. He told me that day that it would be good to get back to running by no yoga at least for another week. So, I left his office and went to the gym and did a run. That day I felt fine even though I did feel like I was going to faint at the end but I thought that was because I was less than 12 hours off percosets. Well, the next day it was PERFECTLY clear that running was NOT a good idea!!! So I only ran once my week 22. I feel like I am back at week 6 of C25K but that is OK!! I will get back up to running a 5K and then I will work my way up to 5 miles! God is good! And I am thankful for my recovery journey that has taught me to take things 1 day at a time or in this case... One run at a time!
